Well, I do understand that I have a poorly configured mail server on my
machine. Indeed it is a laptop, not a mail server. Other sites accept
the test mails I send from this laptop, and since I am not a system
administrator, I strictly have no clue on what to do to get with `bts'
the same level of functionality than with `reportbug', that is:
installing it on a machine and using it "out of the box" to communicate
with the BTS.

Apparently I am wrong that the DEBEMAIL environment variable can contain
useful information which would make `bts' able to send mails that would
not be rejected by the BTS when using a default Debian instalation. I
will not bother you further and stop using tools that I can not master
because of my lack of interest and skills in the art of mailserver

Have a nice day,
